You can create additional groups within any group category.

Creating a new group enables you to customize the settings for a group of managed objects. Use two methods to create a new group:

  • Copy an existing group. The new group contains the same settings and priorities as the original group. Matching criteria and description are not copied. The new group will be added at the last in the priority list of all the groups.

  • Create an empty group. The new group does not contain any settings or members. You must add settings and matching criteria, and set the priority of the new group.

    After creating a new group, use the procedures previously described in this chapter to add settings and matching criteria and to set the priority of the new group.
